    Wish list 2023!

    I'm pretty satisfied for gear for the most part. This year I really want to put my playing on focus and improve my reading skills (sheet music for example). I want a 5.5X14 bronze snare too but that'll come at a later date.

    Agop SE Jazz Ride 22” - my thoughts

    Such a FANTASTIC pie! Specifically the 22” which I hand picked from DCP’s Cymbal Vault Youtube page. Very woody stick sound, so buttery when crashed. Reminds me of an old vintage Tony Williams/Mel Lewis style cymbal, and sounds huge as a big crash too! Very impressed and pleased with this thing...

    Chasing recommendations for dark and dry hi hats

    Istanbul came out with their 15" XIST Dry Dark Brilliant Hats and they have the sound you might be looking for! The Signature stuff is great too, I have a 24" ride that I love to bits! :)

    How many Crashes?

    None at the moment, I like to use light rides as crashes. I love their deep tone and I'm a left handed player so when a pattern is too fast for my right, I swap to my left side crash/ride! :) However I might be picking up a 20" crash in the near future that is more live, 'cause my riveted...

    Crash Cymbals - same or different ones?

    It's all up to your personal taste, I've found I like to use a light sizzle ride as a darker crash and man is it beautiful

    What piece of gear didn't live up to expectation.

    Thanks man! I’m doing more fusion/funk stuff these days. So a really thin, dry cymbal is more of the sound I’m going for

    What piece of gear didn't live up to expectation.

    Well, my 24" Joey Waronker Agop ride shipped in a few days back and while it was a great cymbal, I put it on my stand and found that that particular model just wasn't for me (a little too heavy and has a longer sustain). Craving more of a darker and dryer sound these days so I'm getting it...

    Hand picked a 24” Istanbul Agop Joey Waronker ride at Bentley’s Drum Shop while down in California. It’s incredibly versatile and I can’t wait to go home and play it!

    Big Cymbals..Yes, or No?

    I absolutely love big crashes, right now it’s a 20 on my left and a 22 on my right :)

    My favorite sticks

    I got a pair of the Promark Carter McLean's and it felt so right in my hands, that I used my player points to get another pair for on the road!

    Where did you place your ride?

    I’d consider mine at a medium height and slightly tilted towards me.

    Aquarian Super Kick 10 mini-review

    Have you tried the Force series bass heads from Aquarian? It’s their equivalent of a P3 and although I’ve never tried one myself as I am a fan of the SK heads, I’ve heard from others that it’s a lot more open and a touch more lively...
